ATHENS – The No. 1-ranked Georgia football team had no problem improving to its first 11-0 start since 1982, walloping Charleston Southern 56-7 on its Senior Day at Sanford Stadium.

The Bulldogs (11-0, 8-0 SEC) overcame an interception on their opening drive to score touchdowns on seven of their final eight first half drives. Georgia’s run game took control of the game against Charleston Southern (4-6), rushing for 233 yards on 32 attempts.

Perhaps the most noteworthy run of the day came early in the first quarter when star defensive lineman Jordan Davis scored the first Bulldog touchdown run from a yard out.

Quarterback Stetson Bennett played just over a quarter in the win before being replaced by JT Daniels. Bennett finished 8-of-14 passing for 105 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Daniels was 7-of-12 passing for 73 yards and one TD in relief.

The Georgia defense dominated yet again, allowing xx yards of total offense and just x first downs. The only Buccaneer points on the day came on a wacky scoop and score following a Bulldog interception.

Georgia will be on the road next Saturday against Georgia Tech at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta.
